I was recently told by a spiritual master that, "it's all
about vibrations." I have been thinking about that statement
for several months now. How does this relate to our present goals
and personal growth?
I wrote an outline of where I think the study of vibrations could
lead us to new paths of explorations and self-awareness.
William Buhlman stated in his book, 'Adventures beyond the Body' to
"Forget all your spatial concepts of up and down, near and far.
The entire multidimensional universe is here and now." He then
states that the concept that describes the structure of the universe
is density and that each dimension encountered after we shed the
physical shell (astral projection for example) is less dense in its
"vibrational" substance. He also stated that,
"apparitions and poltergeist activity are simply the natural
result of a nonphysical inhabitant lowering its personal vibrational
frequency (density) so that it can temporarily be seen or interact
within the denser physical dimension."
Even if even a small percentage of the 50,000 computerized worldwide
reports are true about UFO's (some from extremely reliable sources
such as generals, pilots, and even Jimmy Carter who filed an
official UFO report while he was Governor of Georgia) then you know
they've got to be manipulating parallel universes to traverse time
and space. We all "know" that light is the fastest
recognized object (kind of like how we knew the earth was flat?),
but what if you didn't travel outside, but instead, WITHIN?
Astral Projection and Vibrations:
As per Robert Monroe in Journeys Out of the Body: "The
vibrational sensory effect was the single consistent symptom
throughout the Beginning Stage. However, it appeared to be
evolutionary. The early vibrations seemed to be rough, sometimes
accompanied by a visual image of a localized ring of electrical
"sparks." The frequency was on the order of ten cycles per
second, according to the visual clock timing. At the conclusion of
the Beginning Stage, the frequency had increased to approximately
eighteen c.p.s. with much less discomfort to the physical
Sylvan Muldoon & Hereward Carrington said in The Projection
of the Astral Body that, "The range of vibration to which our
earthly existence is limited and does not extend over all creation;
consequently we are unaware of the vast realities all around us.
When the astral phantom (whose eyes you are using even now in
reading this) becomes tuned up--which it can be--those eyes will be
able to see other things besides the familiar surroundings, and the
astral body will be able to get out of the physical."
Changing our vibrations:
How do we change our frequencies? Several ways: meditation, thought
patterns, and spending more time in the astral. To a lesser degree,
I'm sure food and living conditions play a part.
I practice manipulating my vibrations as I'm going to bed and
waking up. I send energy through my body until I can really feel it,
and then I manipulate it (increasing and decreasing the speed,
moving it up and down my body). Stimulating and working with your
chakras also affects your vibrational level (see Glossary for chakra
description). As a person's vibrations change, they can then tune
into different vibrations around them. For instance, some
"sensitive" people can see ghosts and auras. It has also
been documented that paranormal activity increases-- why? Because we
are spiritual beings and probably really charge our
"batteries" when spending time in the astral, so we are
even stronger vibrationally in the physical when we return.
Another added benefit for raising your vibrations is that you can
then visit higher realms in the astral, and eventually the mental
plane. After years of astral travel, Robert Monroe (a leading astral
projection specialist who has now passed on) started having strange
things happen to him. Several times, in the physical, he
"fell" down his stairs but landed as softly as a feather
(Far Journeys, pg. 9). Money started appearing in his pant pockets.
He could no longer consume alcohol or take any medications,
Physical vs. the Astral:
The primary difference between the astral and the physical is
vibrations. When you leave your body, you are at the coarsest
vibrations and are open to anomalies in that range. You will see the
astral counterparts to things in the physical. This is where overlay
can happen. You may see thought objects, objects from previous
tenants, or even objects from the future. An example of this was
demonstrated by a remote viewing session. A target was done of a
field, but the viewer saw a building that wasn't there (so it was
deemed that he didn't have correct "target contact").
However, later, the exact building he drew was built. This can
happen in the astral as well, again showing the malleable nature of
time. A reader recently sent me this description of his astral
experience: "I walked to my bathroom and I noticed that things
weren't the same. The window was there! Well it's still there, but
my sister has built her room onto this side of the house and it's
really a shelf now." The longer something exists in the
physical, the more permanent its home is in the astral. Also,
something new may not yet even be imprinted. Such is the strange
world of the astral.
So what is possible?
Depending on how much time you want to put into it, miracles, I
would suppose. But with our modern, hectic life, is it really
conducive to the times of old? Not many of us can be like monks and
wile away the day in some quiet monastery. Results are going to vary
